Charles Maurice Detmold & Edward Julius Detmold (1883 ~ 1957): The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling illustrated by the Detmold twin brothers was published by Macmillan in 1903.

Folio Page 24 x 16 inches/500 x 390mm plates size; 17 x 13 inches/330 x 430mm. Bio:-Charles Maurice Detmold and Edward Julius Detmold were English graphic artists, twins, born on 21 November 1883. Due to the illness of their father, they grew up in the care of their uncle, Dr E B Shuldham, who had acquired a notable collection of Japanese woodprints of plants and animals. This encouraged the twins to commence drawing animals and plants at a very early age, and resulted in a debut at the age of 13 at the Royal Academy and the Royal Institute of Watercolour Painters, with nature studies in the Japanese style. The Detmolds subsequently learned techniques of watercolour etching and of colour printing with copper plates. Edward, and his brother, Charles, often worked jointly on their etchings and illustrations. Their first collaborative book illustrations were produced for the 1899 Pictures From Birdland. Together they illustrated a portfolio of 16 watercolors inspired by Kipling's The Jungle Book in1908, but that was to be their last artistic collaboration. Charles was 25 when he took his own life.
